What is Anti-Aging Medicine?

Many of us are so used to going to our GP with our tiny piece of paper listing all of our health concerns,  hoping we can get everything discussed that we are worried about, only to be rushed through the standard 10 or 15 minute appointment and left feeling…”was that it?”

Too few doctors, spread too thinly.

So, what is Anti-Aging Medicine? It is a private, comprehensive, health assessment of your current issues, possible future health risks and how they can be prevented, as well as testing for hormone related conditions you may be unnecessarily suffering with.

It is the “full meal deal!”, not a cursory examination addressing perhaps only one or maybe two issues. Anti-Aging medicine attempts to address the whole you.

Do you have relatives who have been sick or passed away from illnesses that you are concerned might also be in your future? This is where you give your extensive personal and family history and no stone is left unturned.

Dr. Frame’s Proactive Wellness Program will help you ‘turn back time’ on your health. Exercise, eating right and hormone replacement options may get you feeling and looking better than you did 10 years ago.

Anti-Aging Medicine is Personalized and Proven Effective

Anti-Aging medicine is personalized, tailored to your health needs, and effective because it is supported by peer-reviewed, proven effective medicine. Doctor Frame can create an Anti-Aging treatment plan that addresses:

  • Perimenopause
  • Menopause
  • PMS
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stress and depression
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Sexual health and libido
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Diabetes screening and prevention
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Breast cancer prevention
  • Young Women’s Health
  • Midlife Health
  • Men’s Health

Testing for depleted or out-of-balance hormones is always a good idea.  Many of us suffer in silence with exhaustion, lack of libido, mental fogginess, not to mention the long list of symptoms that accompany menopause and andropause.

Why should you consider Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

BHRT, or bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, differs from traditional HRT in that hormones are derived from natural sources, but, more importantly, the hormones are identical in molecular structure as those produced naturally by our bodies. With HRT, hormones are synthetically derived and do not match our body’s hormones. While both treatments may reduce symptoms of and prevent disease, BHRT treatments/dosage is unique to the individual with the ultimate goal of bringing hormones into balance.

  • Improve mental functioning and memory
  • Assist in changing fat to lean muscle mass
  • Support healthy sleep patterns
  • Increasing collagen and elastin to the skin
  • Decrease some skin thinning, sparse hair and dry skin
  • Enhances immune function, improving healing capacity
  • Help with bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol
  • Can improve bone density and bone mass, decreasing risk of osteoporosis
  • Feeling good increases the desire and endurance for exercise
  • Osteoporosis. 

Those over 65 years of age are at particular risks for conditions such as osteoporosis and those who are younger need to know how to prevent it.

Women are at much greater risk, for conditions such as osteoporosis, losing bone more rapidly than men due to menopause. Dr. Frame will guide you as to whether this risk is significant or not, and what to do to prevent or treat, this condition.

Also, your race and cultural influences, work and environmental influences on your health, need to be addressed.

The whole point is to assist you with healthy aging so that you stay as strong and well as possible for as long as possible.

Anti-Aging Medicine can even move into cosmetic enhancements that you’ve always wanted to make. Lasers for skin resurfacing to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport which can take years off of your appearance making you more confident and look less tired and yes, younger.

You don’t need a referral to see Dr. Frame for an Anti-Aging Medicine consultation and he can work WITH your GP to give you the best outcomes possible.
